Well f2p principle.
Frustrate the player enough so they are forced to pay.
If the player base is happy then they are not milking people hard enough.
The only real interaction NA gets with GMs is when they announce new gachas or content updates and most long time players know about those updates months in advance from watching KR players streaming.
9 year old topic, not same situation and population. You seem like only one stuck in 2008~2009.No I don't hate this game I just don't like having not enough people all the time ^^ You don't have right to tell someone to play different game.
Your opinion is only legit....if there were enough people to make server completely full. I'd understand if you were only against mega server.
I did not contextually tell you to "play a different game". I implied, if you despise the game so much then perhaps you should go play a different game, permanently; (if the shoe fits; wear it). My opinion is legit all of the time; as is every other opinion on this forum (let that sink in).
There seems to be a communication problem here. ~ This thread is not about Hardmuscle's opinion, or your opinion of Hardmuscle's opinion, or Hardmuscle's opinion of your opinion of Hardmuscle's opinion, or anybody else's opinion of anyone's opinion. This is not an opinion party.
This thread is a Nine-Year-Old (dead-on-arrival) debate. It remains open (as opposed to locked) only as a place to merge its own restoration in to (each time it's restored by someone who can't comprehend no). If there was only 1 channel on Mari, Tarlach, and Ruairi (or you weren't playing when you know the USA is asleep for the most part), there'd be more than enough people to serve you; and yes yes, I am aware that the game is open to more than just the USA, but this does not change the fact that the servers are in the USA. I say "serve you" because, the level of thought (or lack of it) being applied here is assuming, 'others must be here to cater for everyone else'.. and that is not the case. You are basing your entire "judgement" on only the visible population (each and every time you make the judgement) and not once acknowledging those who aren't being included (accounted for; even rightfully), due to being offline for any length of time (be it 5 years, 5 months, 5 weeks, 5 days, or 5 minutes).
You and this cult (the server-merge-groupies) can't exactly say, "a user's non-presence around you (when you deem they must be present to serve you, on the spot) is indicative of inactivity warranting a merge of servers"; let alone a loss of all hope by anyone other than yourselves.
What works for Korea won't neccessarily work for us. Korea probably has better equipment since the game is more popular over there, for one thing. They certainly have a much larger flow of cash than NA does.
So, unless the Koreans come over here to personally code the server merge themselves, "they successfully did server merge without DevCAT, even at korea where population is much bigger than ours" means absolutely nothing, and does not reflect in any such way the ability to successfully do it over here, since the people who would most likely do the coding are the people here, who I do not trust at ALL.
Hardmuscle's "hatred" of this topic is justified; no matter how many times these requests have led to nothing (Nexon even once publically said that a server merge will not happen) people still beg for one. Its like beating a dead horse with another dead horse.
@Unwanted2 and @Oligarchy
Why do the two of you (or you) spend so much time playing a game you despise? Perhaps the two of you (or you) should go play a different game, permanently. As for the reports, I said formally (as opposed to in this forum) and the both of you (or you) can consider it done. Your actions from this point forward (both in the forum and in the game) will determine the outcome. ~ I don't recall asking if you cared or not.
Putting words in my mouth doesn't change a thing here. Closing the door is not about deleting accounts. It's about making the game unavailable because everyone has been squeezed together like sardines on one server, which at some point will become too full to accommodate the existing (as opposed to non-existing) userbase. Requiring Nexon to replace what you spent the last 9 years begging them to remove. ~ Define redundant.
Remove mods who are not hired by Nexon and hire people that do. They have money, its no excuse just lazyness. Also Missfortune the discord reporting idea only works if people use both the forums and discord. That rarely happens, its either discord or forum, think about which is easier.
